Infrafamilial Phylogeny of the Aquatic Angiosperm Podostemaceae Inferred from the Nucleotide Sequences of the matK Gene
The matK phylogenetic analyses show that Podostemaceae are composed of two major clades that correspond to the subfamily Tristichoideae sensu stricto and Weddellina and thesubfamily Podostemoideae, and may suggest that the sub family perhaps originated in America and migrated to the Old World.
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Podostemaceae: implications for taxonomy of major groups
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of matK sequences for 657 samples showed that plants of Tristicha (Tristichoideae) and of Weddellina (Weddellinoideae), which are currently treated as monospecific, had great matK differentiation equivalent to at least interspecific variation.
Nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences and phylogeny in East AsianAconitum subgenusAconitum (Ranunculaceae), with special reference to extensive polymorphism in individual plants
Internal transcribed spacer sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA were used to examine the phylogeny of East Asian aconites and identified eight putative ITS pseudogenes from four taxa with low predicted secondary structure stability and high substitution rates.
Seedling developmental anatomy of an undescribed Malaccotristicha species (Podostemaceae, subfamily Tristichoideae) with implications for body plan evolution
Comparison of the seedling development of an undescribed Malaccotristicha species and described patterns of Podostemaceae suggests that the radicle was lost in the early evolution of Podstemaceae and instead adventitious roots replaced it as a leading organ.
Phylogenetic relationships between disjunctly occurring groups of Tristicha trifaria (Podostemaceae)

Comparative developmental anatomy of seedlings in nine species of podostemaceae (subfamily Podostemoideae).
The reduced meristem morphology of seedling roots may be primitive in the Asian-Australian Podostemoideae, and similarities between the unique seedling morphology and mutant Arabidopsis phenotypes are discussed.

The result supports the hypothesis that the Amaryllidaceae evolved in Africa and subsequently spread to other continents, further suggesting that South America is the center of secondary diversification.
Molecular phylogenetic analyses and systematics of the genus Saussurea and related genera (Asteraceae, Cardueae)
The phylogenetic relationships of the genus Saussurea DC. and Hemistepta lyrata Bunge were analyzed using the nuclear ribosomal ITS and chloroplast matK gene. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that…
